Marco Oppedisano

Highly versatile guitarist and prolific composer with a unique approach to music education.
Teaching Philosophy

I am an enthusiastic teacher and enjoy communicating my knowledge of music to students. I have discovered that students are more responsive when they realize that their teacher is familiar with the music they enjoy. I am always gratified to see students’ reactions when they derive satisfaction and pleasure from a disciplined, learning musical environment.
